Because I can be a shy, shy demure girl…and because “Details in the Fabric” by Mraz and Morrison is stuck in my head.

Calm down
Deep breaths
And get yourself dressed instead
Of running around
And pulling all your threads saying
Breaking yourself up

If it’s a broken part, replace it
But, if it’s a broken arm then brace it
If it’s a broken heart then face it

And hold your own
Know your name
And go your own way

And hold your own
Know your name
And go your own way

And everything will be fine
Everything will be fine
Hmm

Hang on
Help is on the way
Stay strong
I’m doing everything

And hold your own
Know your name
And go your own way

And hold your own
Know your name
And go your own way

And everything, everything will be fine
Everything

Are the details in the fabric
Are the things that make you panic
Are your thoughts results of static cling?

Are the things that make you blow
Hell, no reason, go on and scream
If you’re shocked it’s just the fault
Of faulty manufacturing.

Yeah everything will be fine
Everything in no time at all
Everything

[Chorus]

Are the details in the fabric (Hold your own, know your name)
Are the things that make you panic
Are your thoughts results of static cling? (Go your own way)

Are the details in the fabric (Hold your own, know your name)
Are the things that make you panic (Go your own way)
Is it Mother Nature’s sewing machine?

Are the things that make you blow (Hold your own, know your name)
Hell no reason go on and scream
If you’re shocked it’s just the fault (Go your own way)
Of faulty manufacturing

Everything will be fine
Everything in no time at all
Hearts will hold

Tomorrow, my thesis partner and I — as with the rest of the graduating (must. have. conviction.) batch of journalism majors — will be submitting our concept papers for the perusal of the faculty. Deep breaths and fingers crossed for the months ahead!

It’s so easy getting caught up or overwhelmed with the big picture that the little things sometimes escape our notice. With this in mind, I’m trying a new approach in this outfit post by shifting attention to details (in the fabric or otherwise).

I wore prints on prints for the first time today, but made sure the colors were complementary to keep from looking outlandish. The paisley top (P250 on a Christmas sale) is from a Korean outlet store in Harrison Plaza, and the printed skirt is a P105 find from a Makati Cinema Square thrift store.

Topped off the look with dangling earrings (P10) from a garage sale, a gold watch borrowed from my mother, a charm bracelet given as a gift, and a ribbon ponytail (P15) from Times Plaza in UN Avenue.🙂
